Variety theatre is a luxury need of your Artisans Artisans and Engineers Engineers.

Like every public building it has a limited range which is based on the street distance between the affected building and the theatre. Its full range (dark green) is 38 tiles for dirt roads and 56 for paved streets. Its max range (light green) is 78 tiles for dirt roads and 116 for paved streets.

When artisans residences are in the full range of the theatre, each of them will gain 6 happiness and grant you more income depending on game settings:

  • high income: +7 coins per minute per residence
  • medium income: +7 coin per minute per residence
  • low income: +6 coin per minute per residence

When engineers residences are in the full range of the theatre, each of them will gain 6 happiness and grant you more income depending on game settings:

  • high income: +10 coins per minute per residence
  • medium income: +9 coin per minute per residence
  • low income: +8 coin per minute per residence.

When residences are outside of the full range but inside the max range they will gain less happiness and give you less income based on the street distance from the theatre.
